The Festschrift in honor of the 70th birthday of the former Secretary General of the Egyptian “Supreme Council for Antiquities” (SCA) Gaballa Aly Gaballa comprises contributions from 23 scholars from Europe and Egypt. The here published essays cover the time span from the Egyptian Early Period to the Coptic Period, discussing archaeological and historical, as well as philological and religious issues.
Researchers like Günter Dreyer and Nabil Swelim present results of their latest excavations; several of Gaballa’s many students make unknown objects from the Egyptian museum in Cairo accessible to the public for the first time; and Kenneth A. Kitchen introduces the reader to innovative as well as traditional views on the family of Ramses II., basing these investigations on his studies on the later New Kingdom periods. Old Egyptian literature is focused on in Dietrich Raue’s ideas on re-dating certain events of the period, and in Zeinab Mahrous’ analysis of the entry phrases of the Tale of the Doomed Prince and the Tale of Two Brothers.
